- Iraq and Kuwait Tour - Bennie and the Jets Entertain Our Troops
- We played before our troops who were very enthusiatic and appreciative of our willingness to come all that way to perform for them. We are just as appreciative of the service they provide for us. We had a great time performing and made a lot of new friends and fans. A big THANK YOU to all our troops and the fine staff at MWR for taking care of us over there. It was an experience of a lifetime for us.

- Lunch Around The World - NY - October 15, 2008
- On Saturday, October 11th, 2008 Greg & Dan performed at the 5th Annual Lunch Around the World - Manhattan Style in Times Square NY benefiting the Elton John AIDS Foundation. It was a great event for a very worthy cause.
Greg and Dan had a great time in NY performing for the LATW crowd and are thrilled by the response they've received from attendees and the coverage they got on EltonJohn.com. A reporter and camera crew from EltonJohn.com were in attendance at the event to capture all the excitement.
EltonJohn.com shot some video footage of "LATW-Manhattan 2008",
which includes some of Greg & Dan's performance and an interview with the boys.
Our own Nancy Moraski shot some stills during the event and is also mentioned on the EltonJohn.com site,
along with a link to those photographs. Here's a link to the festivities, video,
